Ella (McKenzie 2015), would this be her 1st nesting, TPC? I'm only too happy there is at least one hatchling here at WW. Hope there are many photo ops, Dennis. Any updates on Logan?  ???

Happy that they have at least one chick.

Could be a quiet year for you TPC (downtown & West Wpg). We'll have to see how Logan and any other sites do.

Yes, Ella's first nesting - and you can sure tell  ;D  Took her until today for her to feel comfortable to take the food closer to the chick during meal times -  up until now she has had to stretch a long long way and that impacted her ability to feed chick easily or accurately!  Ty is using his father's strategy at meal times - he catches food and drops it off so she has to leave to get it and he gets about 5 minutes with the tot before she comes back ... then he yells at her and doesn't want to get off.  He of course does get off the chick after a short protest.  It is very cute.

I'm glad there is at least one hatch here, would be even happier if there was more than one - solos drive me crazy.  Have to see what happens this time around.  Ty is better than most adults for hanging out near/at the nestbox on his "free time" so maybe that will make the chick more liable to stay safe until it is old enough to fledge.  Now Ella likes to sit on some window washing mounts on the rooftop (makes her invisible from the ground) so maybe that will be enough to get tot to run around on the roof rather the roof edge or trying to fly too soon.  Only time will tell ... but I'm crossing my fingers now in case I can "bank" some luck for later.

I must agree that early take off has been bad from this site. If the chick frolicks on the rooftop, my wish is that we had cams like the time the Brandon chicks had the times of their live on he rooftop. So entertaining.  ;D

Iíve been wishing for a cam here for a number of years now, though so far, wishing hasnít helped. But you never know! :)

We were in Winnipeg today for lunch at a restaurant close by the nest site, we could see the east side of the building from our table by the window.

I saw both falcons flying over and around the building, not at the same time though. One landing on a sign who looked like they had prey, I think it was Ella by size.  I think I saw a nest exchange because I saw one disappear on the roof and then a larger one appeared and flew around.  When we were leaving I watched a falcon fly to the south and disappear.

Couldn't ask for anything better than that! It was a great lunch for me!
